Mobile MIM lets physicians use an iPad or iPhone to measure distances and image intensity in CT, PET, MRI, and other scans, as well as display measurement lines and notes.
The complex system of white matter fibres that relay information in the brain has been accurately recreated in a 3D-printed model.
It's been tested on only a handful of kids, but using MRI with a diagnostic dye to look for cancer may work just as well as using PET and CT scans.
Georgetown University has begun a program that uses iPads in their operating rooms to assist doctors with complicated operating procedures.
When it comes to detecting cancer, ultrasound is simply too low-res to compare with CT scans and MRIs. Up the resolution, though, and the less expensive, radiation-free alternative could become an ideal alternative.
The goal of the cloud-computing project is to let physicians and radiologists "google" a brain scan to find patients with similar abnormalities, review their anonymous medical records, and improve both diagnosis and treatment.
Researchers test out a catheter-based probe that emits high-frequency energy directly into the renal artery to deactivate nerves that regulate blood pressure.
X-ray tech is more a hundred years old, and doctors in The Netherlands have powered up an old machine and compared it with a modern one. It stands up well--if you don't mind the radiation.
Researchers at UCLA digitize rapid diagnostic tests to test for diseases such as HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis with less user error.
